Introducing The Future of Money Project

About This Project

On October 25th 2010, Venessa will be presenting a keynote at the SIBOS conference in Amsterdam, the world’s premiere financial services event. We are taking this opportunity to share our perspective with some of the movers and shakers in the financial industry in the form of a 3-5 minute video to accompany Venessa’s presentation. We are calling this project The Future of Money.

What disruptive technologies are transforming our ability to exchange value? What complimentary and digital currencies are emerging? How can we develop tools that accelerate innovation and human empowerment? What is true wealth?

These are the questions we’re going to address in the Future of Money video. We’ll provide a snapshot of the emerging currencies landscape, and interview the innovators and thought leaders who are busy developing business models, frameworks, and ideas for a new global economy. Then we’ll pull it all together with some compelling visions of how things could play out over the next decade.

An Experiment in Open Innovation

In the spirit of open innovation we intend to give this video away for free when it is finished. We believe that the research and opinions we’ll collect will be of significant value to anyone concerned about their economic future – and who isn’t these days! That’s why we’re asking you to determine for yourself what degree of support you can muster to help. Even just a small amount will go a long way towards helping us cover our time and expenses on this volunteer effort. And of course it couldn’t hurt to tell your friends 😉 Use the contribution buttons on the sidebar to the right to support the project however you can.

It is our belief that if this production is generously supported by the network it will serve as a perfect example of the kind of courageous new business models that will be increasingly commonplace as the new economy evolves!

    Hi Guys!

    Very excited!! I’m about complementary currencies…I imagine you have already read or heard these names but I’ll put them down as a reaminder:

    Thomas Greco (find his books in amazon and videos in youtube and google http://www.beyondmoney.net)
    Bernard Lietaer (his book is in scribd http://www.lietaer.com)
    John Rogers (www.valueforpeople.co.uk)

    Please watch ‘the money fix’ so you don’t reinvent the wheel

    read ‘The soul of money’ or get in contact with ‘awakening the dreamer – changing the dream’. It is an amazing thing to attend to if you can.

    bring it on!
    John Rogers (Value for People)

    Hi Venessa
    I am super interested in your project and thought you should perhaps take a look at a project that was done by students from the Design Interactions MA course at the Royal College of Art in London with Intel about the future of money.

    It is a nice student project that was part of Intel’s People and Practice research headed up by Wendy March. It gave the opportunity for students to apply the Design Interactions method of thinking (how to use design to debate and discuss emerging technologies in our everyday lives) with Intel’s interest in exploring new ways of applying Intel technology in the future.

    Good luck with your presentation/film and hope to chat more in the future.

      Hi Tiberius! I think our final video for this project may be a good video to share. It will be released to the public next week. We’ve been reading about the concept of a Discovery Network on your website and finding it very intriguing. It resonates strongly with the way we’ve been collaborating so far.
